|5 låtar för Margarethe - Buben|
Vladislav Buben returns to BFW with one of the best and most interesting releases of 2012 (in my humble opinion). Layered electronics, manic voices and saxophones that defy much description. The mini-album by the Belarusian electronic musician Vladislav Buben is dedicated to his Swedish friend Margarethe Műntzing-Kuhn. Vladislav says about Margarethe: “She is the person who with her love and positive attitude to life has influenced me and many others creating a different look at the world aro...

|Twilight Sessions volume 4 [BFW107] - Bing Satellites|
The fourth album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the previous three releases in this series, this is a collection of improvised live recordings. In places, very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice, clarinet and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay...

The sixth album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the first five volumes, this is an album of completely improvised, live ambient music. Each piece starts as a blank canvas. The music is built around a long, slowly decaying loop. Notes are added from synths, guitar, voice and clarinet and over time, they built into grand, atmospheric soundscapes. Sometimes, however, I forget to press record when something wonderful is created...

|Neptune - Eko_Fisk|
Eko_Fisk's sixth release on BFW is, in his own words, a kind of a space opera that came to me after watching some scifi movies... I developed a plot and soundtrack in my head. This is a collection of short ambient electronic songs. Spacey and atmospheric but tinged with an eerie darkness. A wonderful piece of work.

Beautiful and chilled. 'The Snow Imposed Silence' is the wonderful new album from Cousin Silas. Many of you will know this music from his previous releases on Fflint Central, Earth Monkey and justnotnormal, as well as appearances on several compilations. But for those of you new to this artist, this is a lush, drifting ambient album. Think of Namlook or Tangerine Dream and you are somewhere close, though this album has a unique flavour...

|Thirteen [BFW206] - The Ambient Visitor|
The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites. A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts. The music is generative: each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself. I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood...

A selection of live, improvised recordings from March, April and May 2012, performed on piano, synths, flute and clarinet plus a whole host of electronic wizardry.

This album includes two early experiment with playing live instruments (flute on 'Voices inside my head' and clarinet on 'Denner's travels in harsh static') through pitch pedals...

BFW is proud to present the new collaboration between Burning Artist and Emerald Adrift, a unique mix of ambient soundscapes and dark electronics. Burning Artist is the ambient/experimental sound artist alter ego of the Burning Artist(s) Sale. Work on this album started sometime late in 2010, when images of earth were used to create MIDI/musical elements for the two longer pieces. This is the type of geek stuff that Burning Artist thrives on...

|The Dream - Bing Satellites|
The new experimental ambient EP from Bing Satellites. A heady mix of ambient dub and glitchy electronics along with lush strings and atmospheres. The songs on this EP, unusually for me, all came to life through different processes: Sleepwalking is built around the rhythms of a loop of sound put through a resonator. The sound I recorded when I stuck a microphone out of my window. At that moment, a couple of neighbours were putting out their rubbish...

|Landscape and Drift - Bing Satellites|
Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all of...

|Unfelt Massive - Closer Contact|
The new abstract ambient album from Closer Contact. Magnus Larsson returns with his sixth release on BFW (including his collaborations with Meteer). This is yet another ambient tour de force - an album of mysterious electronic soundscapes. In his own words - I've tried to create a straight down ambient album with more or less no rhythm involved. Some of the songs are kind of divided into separate parts within and the last song ends with some glitchy clicking going on...

|Twilight Sessions volume 12 - Bing Satellites|
The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to...
